    This game gives you an opportunity to control a helicopter and complete different missions - rescue people, destroy some objects and escape. The graphics are not that nice, even thought the name says - HD. Enemy, buildings and all other background could be more detailed or it's even could be used other art style, which is simpler but pleasant to the eye.

The graphics are not that nice, even thought the name says - HD. Enemy, buildings and all other background could be more detailed or it's even could be used other art style, which is simpler but pleasant to the eye. First half of the game was kinda boring, because there were a small number of enemy, so missions were easy. But then new enemy appears - jets, tanks, mortars, which brings a difficulty to the game. After completing each missions you get stars 1 to 5 and it's important to get more of them to unlock a better helicopters. Some of the missions could seem too hard, but after giving a few tries you will find a way how to beat them fast and safe. Also there are few zombie missions, where you have to safe people from zombie's attacks and if you land too close to ground, they can jump up to your helicopter and you will need to shake them out. The game lacks of ammunition upgrades, where you could choose what weapons to use. In start of each mission the pilots make some jokes out so it doesn't seem that you control a empty helicopter, also in one mission there a Duke Nukem character (real Duke Nukem's voice actor), which you can try to shoot and it will say some phrase. If you like a side-scrolling arcade games and see this game on a sales, try it out, if you are not a fan, then avoid this game, because it will not satisfy your needs. Collapse

    Well as cool Arcade, certainly if we like this type of game. The game can pull fans and old fans of this type of aircraft from the side of games where he was cool.

    Choplifter HD is a remake of the successful classic helicopter game from 1982 – so our expectations were pitched quite high. Unfortunately this game is far from meeting them. The repetitiveness in gameplay and its non-compassionate presentation make it, in our opinion, nothing to recommend.

    The tactical implications of saving people while keeping an eye on the fuel gauge are interesting. But you'll lose interest sooner rather than later, thanks to the frustrating design.

    Return of the classic in 3D high definition misses the spirit of its predecessor and after a few missions the game turns routine... [Feb 2012]
